Well said! A must read

A MUST READ.

I had chicken pox as a baby (I don’t remember it) but I’ve had shingles THREE TIMES, the first time when I was EIGHT years old. It’s not just for old farts! In fact, the last time I had it, I was only thirty-seven years old! I hope NEVER to go through that hell again but I suppose I probably will. I’m only sixty years old & in generally good health.

COVID-19 is nothing to laugh off & yet I hear people talking about it as if it’s nothing more than “the seasonal flu”. I don’t know if they’re ignorant of the facts, in denial, or they just don’t care. Maybe a mixture of all three. I get it … what’s gonna happen is gonna happen … but we DO have some control over our lives. & every single one of us touches the lives of every person with whom we meet. Every. Single. Person.

Time to get real.

  1. Thank you Polly for the reblog. Shingles are serious and as you say very painful. There is a shot for older people, but I am not sure if it works for people who have already had an episode of them. Best wishes. Hugs
